[Healeys] Wooden Trim Blocks

What color is the interior in your BT7?  I think that the vinyl covering 
the blocks matches interior color rather than always being black.  I'll 
try to remember to look at my BT7 tricarb tomorrow.  My interior is red, 
so the vinyl over the blocks is most likely red.  When I restored the 
car I matched what was there originally.

And I do believe that the carpet is cur around the block as you have stated.
